August 25th at 8pm - Harmontown
What is Harmontown? It's awesome. It's unique. It's one of a kind. It's something only Dan Harmon (creator of Community and the upcoming Rick and Morty) and Jeff B. Davis (Whose Line is it Anyway) can do. It's a different show every time and it's every week. Lucky us! Playing Dungeons and Dragons? It's happened. Dan Harmon freestyle rapping? Yup, that too. Calling Chevy Chase from stage? Happened...more than once. A celebrity guest? Allison Brie, Donald Glover, and Gillian Jacobs among others have all stopped in. Getting super personal with an intimate audience? Always. It's Harmontown. It's awesome. It's unique. Don't miss a single week.
August 26th at 7pm - Nerdist Open Mic
Come watch Matt Mira and Kyle Clark host this comedy free-for-all. You'll see brand new comics, comics you know and love trying out new material (Chris Hardwick and Kumail Nanjiani are frequent drop ins), and the magic that is live comedy.
August 27th at 8pm - Star Dreck
Kumail Nanjiani and Matt Mira are huge Trekkies, but even they have to admit that some of them just don't hold up. Join them as they introduce you to some of the worst Star Trek episodes in existence, and then proceed to rip them to shreds. With the help of a special guest will they boldly go where no fan has gone before?
$8 in advance, $10 at the door.
